I am working on this system as it would not post when bought new from store. So I replaced the motherboard and cpu as follows; MSI 760GM-P34 MB with the AMD FX-8300 CPU, and reinstalled everything else. The case came with a 350 watt psu.
I still can not get the system to post, here is what i tried already.
Disconnected everything but 1 stick of RAM - nothing
Connected and disconnected everything one by one - Nothing.
I dont have a keyboard attached, dont think that would stop it from posting,... the only thing left is memory or the psu, right?
I tried different configurations with the 2 sticks of memory, different banks, sticks, etc. Nothing.
I do get 3 beeps when NO RAM is installed, so I am thinking its the psu? As I said this system came with a 350 watt psu, I have one on the way at 400 watts.
The motherboard standoffs are intact, any ideas or insight would be greatly appreciated!
